Case Study
Professional Athletes

The $1.5 million Grand Slam.

The $1.5 million Grand Slam.
Four professional baseball players paid more than $1.5 million in federal taxes on bonuses earned for services rendered outside the United States. Unfortunately, they weren't aware of international tax issues and treaty regulations regarding payments - and since their previous CPA firms had misfiled the athletes' federal tax returns, the players had to pay taxes that weren't required.

PIASCIK’s in-depth knowledge of both international tax law and the specialized tax issues of athletes resulted in a full recovery of these taxes plus interest. What's more, we won multiple IRS appeals and audits in just three days on behalf of these athletes. Once again, PIASCIK & Associates stepped up to the plate and everyone came out a winner.
